Upon arriving, we were told there is a wait, despite having the booking made prior. In about first 20 minutes after the sitting, the first food cart arrived around our table. That’s yum char, not your traditional order and wait restaurant. Service does not exist...More

Visiting New Zealand, must eat their mutton and beef dishes. The mutton (sheep meat) don't have a strong smell, different from goat meat. The beef is so tender and tasty. Nice restaurant.

Seriously the worst yum cha I have ever had in Auckland. Married to a Chinese and often have yum cha...we both agree this was terribly average, nothing special at all. Wouldn't go back or recommend.

Good selection of dishes including vegetarian dishes, with the trolley rolling out a new range each time it goes past.
